I didnít go beyond the click today, it auto stopped on exactly 38.00, so I was happy with that

Learned something, I've always gone 1 more click past the full tank, pump shutoff.

That will be a variable amount depending on what the situation is.

Standing right there as pump kicks off and you give it one more kick isn't much. However say you are cleaning windows when pump kicks off and don't get to it for a couple minutes. In that case you will get appreciably more gas into the tank then the first situation before it kicks again.

I've done both for the past 28 years of driving. Will go pull the owners manuals on my 3 vehicles and see if they say anything. Kind of doubt it as I've read them cover to cover. I could be wrong though.

The other trick was to turn the pump off and squeeze whatever was left in the hose / handle into the tank.
